Who We Are
That’s A Wrap is excited to be the very first acting studio in Ocean Springs, Jackson, and Hattiesburg, MS, for TV and Film acting. Our focus is teaching aspiring and established actors, ages 5 and up, anything pertaining to television and film acting. Our goal is to give each of our students one-on-one attention and help them grow as actors. We strive to work on each actor’s individual goals, strengths, and weaknesses.
Not only do we offer classes involving every aspect of television and film acting, but we are also dedicated to helping our students find the right talent agent. We are glad to guide our students in the right direction with their Casting Network accounts, Actors Access accounts, IMDb accounts, demo reels, head-shots, resumes, and anything else pertaining to the TV & Film industry.
Classes are structured as follows:
1. Scene Study - We teach students the importance of connecting with their scene partner by making eye contact, listening, and reacting. Our goal is to help the actor understand the importance of making bold choices and allowing the character to come to life. We have hundreds of scripts that we use for scene study.
2. Cold Reading - The goal when working on cold reading is for our actors to pick up a script for the first time, and have the ability to act it out as if they've had the script in hand for weeks. This will come with lots of practice. Cold reading is essential for commercial auditions.
3. Audition Technique - When working on audition technique, we provide the tools needed to walk into an audition room and nail the audition. We stress the importance of making eye contact with the casting director, having confidence (not arrogance), and being fully prepared.
4. Improvisation - Improvisation sets up a safe and fun environment for our actors to explore their imagination. Not only does improv help with acting ability, but it also will improve public speaking skills, comfort in social settings, listening skills, and more.
